"If at first you don't succeed, parachuting is not for you"
09-29-2012, 06:52 PM #3Harvin said he saw Sanford get down for a couple weeks and not doing the extra work he had seen him doing, so he reminded him that his number would be called. When Raymond went down in the second quarter of the 49ers game, Sanford came in and made a big play, forcing a fumble....
Coach Leslie Frazier has certainly noticed and appreciated Sanford's professional attitude.
“He did a real good job when he got into the game -- he was prepared,” Frazier said. “He had done a good job of putting himself in a position where, (when) he got called up, he was going to be in position to make plays, and he did. I told him the other day I think he's a great example of what a veteran player, or any player, has to do if they're not starting.”
I hope that's not it.

I for one liked Jamarcus's play every time he has been on the field. Sure he's made some mistakes, but not every player gets it right out of college.
Some players take time to get it.
As I said in another thread....How good must Mistral be if he beat Jamarcus out? Not sure about the rest of you, but I'm liking our S's this year.
Smitty just keeps getting better each game .....That hit yesterday on the TE was almost like seeing Joey Joey Joey lay the wood from days gone by.
Jamarcus had a huge day. Nice hits, one that caused a fumble when we needed it.
Of course, the DL play was so good yesterday, that it allowed our LB'rs and even our S's to play back in their zones like they are supposed to be as dictated by the scheme.
Heck, I even saw someone mention how great a game Jasper had in pass defense and he is supposed to suck at it. (neaner neaner neaner......)
So, lets not get going off the deep end. I'm sure we will see the S's mess up between now and the end of the year. Lets all keep in mind that it isn't because they suck (or take bad angles) its because the scheme made them play that way.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I am not a Sanford fan, but I have to admit that he had a pretty good game yesterday. If he continues to play like that, I will happily eat crow. AT worst he will continue to push Raymond.Zeus wrote:
When are you going to realize that picking out the 20 bad throws this year and ignoring the 300 good ones does not make your point?

I'm really liking our D-coord. I'm buying into what he (and the new DL coach) are trying to do with our DL and agree when it comes to the Smith pick
Kindof a segue into something I've been Pondering as I watch this team (and all the young tealent thats on it) this year.......I wonder how many are giving Spielman credit for the way this team was (is) being built.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
